Windows Media Player 9

by mcpearlman / December 17, 2004 4:16 AM PST

Oh, whoa is me. I am trying to copy CDs to my computer, but although Windows Media Player (as well as a similiar program I downloaded) recognize the number of tracks, I cannot get the program to copy the files to my computer. Nothing happens when I click "copy." I just tried doing this at work and it's copying to my hard disk as I type with no problem. Any ideas? Let me add that I was able to copy from a CD to the computer with no problem a couple of years ago and haven't made any major changes since then. Thanks!

what your Operating System is.

Also, do you have a CDR drive?

Does the CD drive recognise a blank CD in it when you put one in?

and search for a free "ripper" program that will convert the .wav music to MP3 (and vice-versa) or you'll eat up a hard drive unless you burn it off.
Newer music CD's may have a little copyright feature that won't allow copying straight?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
